Annie Sloan recently launched two new chalk paint™ colours in France. Athenian Black and Oxford Navy. So lets say hello to Oxford Navy!
Oxford Navy is an inky, traditional navy blue which evokes the strong, august blue of academic insignia and fountain pens, as well as the rich pigment indigo blue so synonymous with traditional Indian block printing.
This classic but contemporary kitchen has been given a new lease of life with a lick of Chalk Paint™ in Oxford Navy. A fresh coat of Chalk Paint™ is an excellent alternative to redoing your entire kitchen, and as demonstrated here, the end result is fresh, smart and beautiful. Just be sure to use Chalk Paint™ Wax or Lacquer to protect and seal the paint. Apply Chalk Paint™ in thin layers to shiny surfaces such as melamine kitchen cabinets, although wooden surfaces such as these cupboards and kitchen caddy will not require any special measures.
The Oxford Navy parts of this kitchen have been lacquered using Matt Chalk Paint™ Lacquer for an understated, velvety finish. When using Chalk Paint™ Lacquer over darker Chalk Paint™ colours be sure to apply in thin coats to avoid any cloudiness. The floor has been painted in Chalk Paint™ in Versailles and then lacquered in Gloss Chalk Paint™ Lacquer for contrast.
This side table was painted with Oxford Navy Chalk Paint™. The lamp base was painted in Old Violet. We think it makes a very nice statement piece.
Don’t forget you can buy Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in France from La Deuxième Chance either in our shop or order chalk paint on line.
